SCHOOL pupils from across Glasgow have been showcasing their artistic side in a Mackintosh-themed art and design competition.

City pupils came top of the class in St Enoch Centre’s Mackintosh-themed art and design contest.

Submissions went on display in June and have been viewed by thousands of shoppers over the summer, who were able to vote for their favourite entry.

First in the design category was Sophie McClure of Notre Dame High School, whose submission ‘Mackintosh + Rain’ took top prize and impressed the judges with her concept. Notre Dame High School was awarded with a £200 cheque and Sophie received a £100 St. Enoch Centre gift card.

Craig Brown from Govan High School took first place in the expressive category with his outstanding art work ‘A New Era’, with the judges praising his thoughtful work. Govan High School was presented with a £200 cheque and Craig also received a £100 St. Enoch Centre gift card.

Also amongst the winners was Omar Ibrahim of Govan High School, who received a special recognition award. Omar, from Egypt, had only been living in Scotland for one month prior to entering the competition and had never completed a painting before.

St. Enoch Centre’s Mackintosh The Innovator exhibition will remain open throughout October as part of the Mackintosh Festival.
